California Elementary School Hosts Toy Gun Exchange – Is There An Agenda Here?

One day, when I went to pick up my daughter from the babysitter, I saw two neighborhood boys outside playing with toy guns. I heard a disturbing, "Bam, I shot you and you're dead now!" Are elementary-age children so desensitized to guns and killing that they play shoot-em-up? Of course, I'm sure even my dad played 'Cops and Robbers' or 'Cowboys and Indians' with the same toy guns way back before violence on TV or video games and the likelihood of these kids ever turning into psychopathic killers is slim but it still was disturbing to me

The National Security Agency Has Been Granted the Right to Collect Phone Records for Millions of Verizon Customers

I first read this story this morning and became extremely alarmed because I am a Verizon customer. On April 25, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) authorized the FBI and the Federal Government to obtain the phone records of millions, if not all Verizon customers for a three-month period ending on July 19. Am I just being paranoid or does that sound really, really scary?

Miranda Lambert Breaks Down During Oklahoma Benefit Performance and Brings America to Tears

When you are a performer, and yes this even applies to Jon and myself, there is a saying that 'the show must go on'. That means that no matter what is going on in your personal life, you have to set it aside and entertain. I have to admit, that some days, it is VERY hard to do that.

Can you imagine how hard it was for the artists from Oklahoma to perform last night at the 'Healing the Heartland' benefit concert? Being there, viewing first hand the devastation in your beloved state, had to be overwhelming. For Miranda Lambert, who performed 'The House That Built Me', it proved to be too much.

Deer Goes Crazy After Crashing Into a Bus

I have had my fair share of run ins with deer. Living in the country, it's just a way of life. You must, during the early morning hours and evening/night hours, constantly be on alert and have your eyes scanning the sides of the road.

Once, on a trip back to Indiana from Tennessee, a deer came inches away from slamming through the passenger side window of my car, injuring my son. Luckily, the deer hit the front of the windshield and rolled off the hood of the car. But in the case of this bus, it came right through the window and went crazy!!

The NTSB Wants to Lower the Blood Alcohol Level for Drunk Driving

The National Transportation Safety Board has recommended that states lower the blood alcohol level for drunk driving to .05% from .08%. The NTSB believes at least 1,000 lives could be saved each year if this plan were to be adopted. It would be up to the individual states to pass such legislation. Currently, all 50 states have .08 as the standard by which a driver is considered impaired and subject to arrest.

Restore Your Faith in Humanity, Watch This Video

SO many bad things have happened over the last decade. Between movie theatre shootings, school shootings and bombings, I have a heavy heart. I want so badly to see the good in people, but it's hard to do. I find myself looking at people and judging them on the way they look. After moving to the other side of the street of walking a little faster, I hate myself. People ARE good! And this video helped to remind me of just that. It will remind you too. :-)
